Office Move
Acacia Immigration will be moving to premises at level 2, 5 Elizabeth St from the 28th of March. The new office will give us extra space to operate in, with 3 client meeting rooms. Our phone numbers and postal address will remain the same after the move.

Overseas Seminars
Mark Webster travelled to India and presented a number of seminars on migration to Australia in February 2009. Acacia is working with a local partner, Palande Courier, to promote migration services in Maharashtra State.

The response was overwhelming and we had over 100 attendees at our main seminar in Pune. Over 50 face-to-face consultations were held over the week where clients were given a personal immigration roadmap giving full details of their most favourable immigration pathway.

Acacia will return to India later on in 2009 - check our Acacia in India page for further news on Indian visits.

Acacia Approved as CPD Provider
Acacia Immigration was approved as a CPD provider in February 2009.

Acacia plans to offer high quality, workshop style seminars for registered migrations on a limited range of topics in which Acacia has particular expertise.

The seminars will deliver the following to migration agents:
- Latest changes that all agents should be aware of
- Case studies which illustrate how the regulations work in practice, and give agents a chance to work through and solve immigration problems
- Tips on best practice for migration agents

Our seminars will be an essential part of your CPD each year - the first session will be in April 2009.
